Not the original, but great to see that has been restored to give us an insight in the Burmese History and Architecture. Also has a small museum for you to view as well.

This place has been restored after it was destroyed in last war. Some of the old columns have been preserved in their damaged state and there is an old boat carved out of a single log. It has magnificent hall and throne room.
